The Claret Alder (Size 2 Bartleet)…

The wing shape pleased me on this fly, especially the shape near the tail. The wide slip of Mallard looks well on this fly and I like the pointed tail on the fly. Mounting the wide slips of Mallard is not easy, they didn’t go on first time. The cock hackle for the body is something I don’t normally use, but this has a pleasing appearance. This ones ready for the frame.
